Frequently Asked Questions: Liposuction
How is this procedure performed?
Once fat has been separated from other tissue due to a numbing solution, Dr. Donofrio is able to loosen, isolate and vacuum suction away unwanted fat cells, resulting in much less trauma than traditional liposuction.
What is the downtime?
Downtime with this procedure is minimal; most patients return to work in 3-5 days.
Are my results permanent?
Your results are permanent in the sense that fat will likely not return to this area. If you were to gain weight following your procedure, you would accumulate fat somewhere else on the body.
Is this procedure painful?
No. The area of treatment is numbed prior to the procedure, so patients experience little to no discomfort during the procedure itself.
What areas of the body are suitable for liposuction?
The most popular areas of treatment are the chin, neck, arms, back, flanks, hips, abdomen (upper and/or lower), inner and outer thighs, knees and more.
